Chronicles of the Wayward Moot

WELCOME TO THE MOOT, oh world-wanderers and word-whisperers. After two years of Peace Corps. After 2,200 miles on the Pacific Crest Trail. What. Comes. Next?


WINTER in my new home.
Stream melting snowpack from beneath at Summit Meadow near Badger Pass, where we take kids cross-country skiing.

Worth a closer look, sunset light rips across a snowy ridge above El Portal, as seen from Highway 140 below the house where I live.

Near "Oh My Gosh Rock," a short side trip from the Yosemite Falls Trail, a Manzanita's distinctive red bark grins out at the beautiful world.

Heavy snowfall creates artful shapes with the local flora near Badger Pass, California's longest-running ski area.

The legendary Ahwahnee Hotel opened her doors to guests in 1927. Still in operation and classier than ever, she's undergoing a three week closure for upgrades to her fire suppression system among other things. Around her, Yosemite Valley continues to astound with its own winter vestments.
